Real estate and sales has always been my passion and focus. I completed a business diploma in Advertising & Public Relations at St. Lawrence college in Kingston. I then moved on to Queen’s University where I graduated with an Honours degree specializing in urban planning and economic geography.
During my schooling I worked with a construction company learning hands on how to create houses and townhomes from the ground up. This work sparked my interest in the real estate business.
Having a love for the outdoors and active lifestyle I decided to start my career in Vancouver. I completed my real estate license at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. Being in a new province was challenge but with a solid grasp on the industry, and having gained business development experience from previously setting up an automotive business in Ontario, I immediately got my real estate business started. The Vancouver real estate market was on fire and prices were on the rise daily. I joined RE/MAX Crest in North Vancouver, as it was the biggest office and had some of Canada’s top producing agents; simply it had the most horsepower in the business.
I launched my business working with buyers eager to get deals in this frenzied and fast paced market. And from there I started to build out my portfolio of listings. I developed cutting edge marketing, and created web sites that attracted sellers, buyers and investors from all over the world. Sales flourished with satisfied clients and record high sales. The good PR attracted the attention of more prospects, builders and developers who were capitalizing on the demand for real estate. With my previous construction experience I expanded into project marketing for building companies selling new construction and flipping renovated real estate.
After nearly a decade of running an award winning real estate business and personally investing in property, I decided to move my business to Ontario. Family is important and my connection to the York Region as well as Muskoka runs deep. I felt that it was a good time expand and adapt our real estate business into the rapidly developing York Region. I studied and analyzed the new market and put new systems and strategies in place. At this time I expanded into commercial real estate. It took a tremendous amount of energy and effort, but once again business hit record levels: Top 1% for TREB for units old.
From day one I chose to align with RE/MAX. I do so because the company has a proven track record. It is consistently leading the way forward in an ever changing industry. I want to bring the best to my clients and bringing the RE/MAX brand to the table is just one of the ways I can bring peace of mind to consumers real estate transactions.
The real estate industry is ever evolving. When selling a house or commercial building, what works today might not work tomorrow. I always strive to change with the times and deliver the latest and best business practice to my customers. What I don’t change is my work ethic, honest steady focus, analytical mind, persistence to see a job through, and my enthusiasm and passion for this dynamic industry.
